A Warning to all about Fake Orla Kiely Bags
I used to not worry about Orla fakes until this past year. I was in Dallas with my sister shopping at a store called Charming Charlies. Low and behold, while browsing through in the handbags, I spotted the fake. My biggest regret: not taking a picture to warn other Orla fans! Thankfully, they made it easy to spot fakes by not using a signature bag style used by Orla. Here's the pattern that was ripped off:
The Multi Stem Tote (not the actual bag ripped off):
I did dig up a picture of the bag in question on the blog 'Kevin and Amanda.' It's a little hard to tell, but true Orla fans will be able to confirm it's a fake.
If anyone else has spotted a fake, please share.
